I both love and hate this bra. It fits me well, but...
1. The clips which hold the adjustable straps to the length that I want are not strong enough to hold without slipping. That is a big problem. The first time I wore it, the straps slipped completely out of the clips!!!
2. To fix this, I have to sew down the straps at the correct spot, then trim off the extra strap. Now, how hard is it to design the clips to HOLD TIGHT?????? Try using the design of silk clamps, the more weight they support, the harder they grip.
3. The clips attach to the cup by means of a metal part slipped through a short loop of strap which comes off of the cup. This ALWAYS twists and the entire clip changes orientation from horizontal to vertical. I can think of a few design changes so this won't happen, why can't the manufacturers?
4. This last issue applys to almost all bras - when you get into a bra size that is larger, in addition to adding another hook in the back, you also need to lengthen the band under the bra in front, and on the sides. For this bra, and most other bras, the band disapears under my boobs in the front. This is uncomfortable and I'm constantly pulling it out and down. It also digs into the sides of my rib cage. I thought when I switched from wires to no wires the bra wouldn't dig into my side.
But...it still fits my boobs and is the best of the bunch that I've tried over the years. The fabric is soft, the stitching sturdy, and it's flexible. Many other bras in my side are made of so much material and seams that they are hard to pull around my body so the cups are in front after I've hooked it closed.
I will continue to buy this bra, but...I'll be wishing for better design in the clips every time I have to go to the sewing machine.
Goddess Response: Thanks so much for your suggestions, we’ll certainly pass them on to our designers.
The great news is Goddess has launched an exciting new soft cup style, Goddess Audrey Soft Cup Bra GD6121. This style is built on an M-frame for maximum support and uplift. The straps are soft, but rigid, with no clasps for stable hold and control. And best of all the straps have a movable padded strap cushion for cushy comfort.
